It affects your priorities

Going through the diagnosis and treatment of a life threatening disease I think changes one. And part of that is really looking at your life, getting rid of some of the trivial stuff, learning to say no to things that you don't want to do. And putting energy into things that are important to you. Trying to take more control of where you put your energy and looking again at the importance of family and friends. And of course, my relationship with Anne is really important and this has really affected her life, too.
